Chesapeake Bay Morning

    You timed the twilight exactly right, with pink light just leaking up into the stars; so magical! Also the second one is beautiful in its realistic rendition. I love how your HDR is varied, some surreal and some realistic!ReplyCancel

    Amazing image of the sunrise AND the stars. Really like the natural look.
    How far did you have to space the exposures to get the stars visible? And how did you not get star trails doing it?

    Just a great great image.ReplyCancel

      The image is a composite of several, I started shooting very early, long before sunlight. I took the star image and brightened them with a small brush, added a few then included it in the composite.ReplyCancel

    Wow! Sums it up. Nature’s art in the “hands” of an artist. Thank you, Ferrell! I love looking at these.ReplyCancel

    Very inspiring indeed… All is about light, everything is worth when light is there… Paintors worked centuries with light, photographers are beginning working on it…

    Gorgeous work…. also speaks to getting down low and getting a lot of foreground interest…. just sensational work.ReplyCancel
